A Very Yummy New Year!

January 2, 2017

 

WELCOME to Part Two of "Make A Holiday Scrapbook". More fun English Language holiday activities for kids. One of the best things about Holidays is all the delicious food. Bubbling pots, sizzling dishes, cool scoops & endless spoonfuls of scrumptious yum! Every country has its own mouth watering & dazzling selection of sweeties, candies, chocolates & ices.

Collect your Holiday Candy memorabilia & ephemera. Wrappers (clean), recipes, adverts, photos, drawings, ingredients & descriptions.  

 

 

ACTIVITY One

Holiday Candy

What's your favourite holiday candy?

 

 

Decorate your scrapbook page with a Candy Collage. 

Read the wrappers.

Find out: Price, main ingredients, description, & country of origin. 

Write onto little pieces of paper. 

Stick onto your collage.

Descriptive Words

Make an unique, delicious & mouthwatering description of your candy.

We need to use lots of interesting describing words called adjectives.

Adjectives give an opinion or a description.

We usually use them in this order :

1. General opinion: Lovely, excellent, traditional, cool, popular, great or famous.

2. Specific opinion: Delicious, mouthwatering, crispy, sticky, tasty or melt in your mouth.

3. Size: large, chunky, gigantic, mini, itty bitty, baby or fun size.

4. Shape: bar, chunks, slab, drop, heart, stick, long, thin or round.

5. Colour: creamy brown, shiny pink, dark chocolate, or glazed red.  

6. Nationality: French, Japanese, Korean, British or Indian.

 Usually, we only use 1 or 2 adjectives to describe a noun. Let's have some fun. See how many you can use! Here are some fun examples:

 Fantastic, sticky, melt-in-your-mouth, ginormous, puffy-cloud-like, pink American cotton candy. 

 

 

Fabulous, creamy, sweet, round scoops of green, pink & yellow Italian ice cream.

 

 

Write your description on a piece of paper. 

Stick onto your Candy Collage.

Great work!

Write cooking verbs on pieces of paper.
Simmer, stir, bake, grill, saute, grind, drizzle, dust, sprinkle, chill, decoratepour, knead, layer, melt, barbeque, bake, marinade, sizzle & scoop.

Stick them onto your Cooking Collage.

ACTIVITY Three
